Question about Seat Ibiza
Sometimes if you don't wait until light goes off before cranking it will cause a flash code...Disconnect battery to reset system..If it comes back on replace glow plugs...Best idea is have a Tech diagnose it if the reset test doesn't solve your problem...Save time and headaches....

I know that accessabilty to the glow plugs is a problem on these cars and a lot has to be removed to reach them ,but a quick test ?? pull the plug from the relay that has 4 thick wires on it ,this is the feed to each heater ,now use a multimeter to each one ,ground and the + probe to the contact and check for a resistance ,one or more could be failed ,replace the failed heater plug and then using a cheap code reader you should be able to eliminate the fault code and then the light will go out,Its a VW so you can read the codes for this year unlike a renault ? say no more their

check to see if your brake lights are working.usually the stop light switch fails and is the cause.but before buying a new one check the stop light fuse.its a common problem with a simple fix.hope this helps.

when the glow plug light keeps flashing.Thats telling you that you have a fault with one of the sensors.Take it to a garage and get it checked out with a diagnostic scan.

this is a common problem for these cars glow plugs go bad like spark plugs however the smoke would lead to bad mass airflow meter. it is not telling ecu corrcet miss. disconnect mass airflow meter. when cold see if this makes it start better. it should would means you need new m.a.f. glow plug issue take a test light place clamp on positive of battery then pull off glow plug connectors place tip of test light on glow plug the bad one will have a dull light unlike the good one which will be brighter. will need new plugs and wire harness four **** connectors and wire striper and crimper will fix concern good luck

Despite what you may read from other comments....The glow plug light is
simple a multi function warning light and IS among many othed
things in fact used to warn of brake light and brake light switch
failure. Therefore it can NOT be treated as glow plug problems only.
I have worked on V.W for many years and have encountered this problem many times. You should get the OBD codes read. This will reveal the exact problem...and there may be more than one
You can contact your V,W agents if you wish and check to see if I am correct.
Best of luck

the car is going into limp mode due to an engine management fault. have to check what the fault is with a code reader. if the milage is high 100,000+ could be a turbo fault (overboosting), as this will put the car into limp mode.
